Attempt Theft of horses in Helsby area

Alert message sent 28/07/2020 13:13:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Dear Horse Watch Member,

We have recently had a report of suspicious activity around horses kept in a field. 3 girls around age 15 attempted to entice the horses over and put head collars on them. When confronted they stated they were from a sanctuary and there to rescue the horse on the sanctuary's behalf. This was not the case and I would suggest if you haven't already then look at getting CCTV or lock gates so it makes it harder for them.

This is highly unusual and not something we see happen in Cheshire very often but it is a timely reminder to up your security. If you see anything suspicious please report it to 101 or if it's a crime in progress 999.
